You have a right and a responsibility to provide adequately for your own self defense and the self defense of your loved ones. Police tend to be a reactive institution rather than a proactive institution when it comes to violent crime; meaning that they show up when called after a violent crime has been committed, not before.  Therefore the prudent individual will take the steps necessary to make sure if a violent encounter heads their way, they are prepared to stop it and survive.

Do not go looking for trouble, but if trouble finds you then having good fighting skills, knowing strike points on the human body that will incapacitate an attacker, being proficient with edged weapons, knowing how to handle handguns, rifles, and shotguns will all be valuable skills if your life is on the line.

Violent criminals do not share the same moral values that we do.  To them you are their meal ticket.  They see you as nothing more than an obstacle to obtaining what they want.  Reasoning and pleading will fall on deaf ears.  What they understand is brute force resistance.  Make yourself a hard target so it is not worth their effort to select you as their next victim.

If you are going through the stages where you’re internally debating with yourself whether or not to carry a firearm, think about the following.

How would it make you feel if a criminal had total control; the power of life and death over you and your family with only the criminal having any say in whether you or your family lived or died.   Without having a firearm and a working knowledge of using that firearm to defend yourself and your family you would have absolutely no input into that scenario.  It is your right and your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.  Never forget that.

The Mossberg 590A1 Pump Action Shotgun (12 gauge) currently serves as my primary home defense shotgun.  This shotgun can hold 8+1 rounds of 12 gauge 2 3/4″ shells and can stand up to a variety of adverse weather conditions.  The barrel of this shotgun is a 20″ heavy profile barrel and the weapon itself is durable, solid, well built, operates smoothly and cycles shells effectively.

This combat ready shotgun can accomodate 12 gauge 2 3/4″ shells and 12 gauge 3″ shells and works well with both buckshot and birdshot loads.  The trigger pull is comfortable and the pump mechanism is smooth and reliable.  The safety is located on the top of the receiver and is thumb operated. 

The safety, when the red indicator is showing equals ready to fire and with the red indicator covered equals on safe.  On my particular 590A1 I have the breacher barrel fore-end, a flashlight mount with flashlight, ghost ring sights, and two additional side saddles, one opposite the ejection port and one on the stock.  Overall I find the Mossberg 590A1 to be the finest home defense shotgun currently on the market.
